Waterfall Junction, Artisan Jewelry
I suppose my interest in jewelry began in junior high school. My closest friend was Native American and made traditional beadwork, some of which she shared with me. The apparent ease with which she turned a small pile of beads into beautiful bracelets and earrings amazed me.
After graduate school, my career brought me to Nashville. I seized the opportunity to take a beadwork class at Vanderbilt University's Sarratt Art Studio. I soon followed up with other classes in metal smithing and wire work. An avid reader, I supplemented these classes with a host of books on these and other jewelry making techniques. Making more jewelry than I could possibly wear, I opened a shop on Etsy in 2010 to sell my extra pieces.
My inspiration comes from a variety of sources including nature, fabric patterns, and antiquity. Learning a new technique also sparks ideas for new pieces, and I am always looking for ways to combine techniques to create unique, wearable objects.
My materials also come from a wide variety of sources. Brass, copper, silver sheet metal and wire; gemstone, glass, and bone beads; thread, beading wire, hemp, and leather cord; among others. Found objects also occasionally wander into my work when I find an interesting object.
